Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know where you can find a detailed and accurate ORBAT for the British forces in Normandy 1944 ?

    This is the sort of thing the yanks are good at publishing on the web but we don't seem to bother with !
  2. Max Hastings' book "Overlord" would be a good start i think...
  3. 21st Army Group consisiting of:

    2nd Army
    1st Canadian Army
  4. Thanks for the pointers, though none of the sources that I've been through so far are particularly in-depth or exhaustive.

    I was hoping for some more info on non-armour / infantry units being an ex-signaller - we always seem to get overlooked or lumped into "support troops" or some equally non-descriptive catch-all phrase.

    Even our own Corps museum's website is not much help.
  5. Nialhall , my previous OC has compiled one, as Normandy is his specialist historical area. If it's ok with you, I'll pass your request to him?
  6. If he ok's it, any chance of adding it to the wiki
  8. Have the imperial war museum not got anything on this. One of their researchers must be able to help, i'm sure.
